00:00 tonsofpcs angy-airport: safe travels! (and however you say that in french)
00:01 angy-airport We say bon voyage or bon vol
00:01 angy-airport I miscalculated, I still have 2 hours in north america
00:01 wannabe1987 lol
00:02 Katemonster joined #thegeekgroup
00:02 angy-airport But in the international zone of an airport, it does not feel the same
00:02 angy-airport And nifty thing is that I have more luggage weight than my own weight
00:03 angy-airport Roughly 10kg more :)
00:04 Katemonster ANGY
00:04 BotSteve Katemonster: I have the following messages for you:
00:04 BotSteve At 30 Sep 06:39Z, wannabe1987 asked me to tell Katemonster http://www.instructables.com/id/50-Cal-Bottle-Opener/
00:05 Katemonster heh, cute.
00:05 angy-airport KATE!
00:05 Katemonster ANGY

00:08 angy-airport That's one of the first time I have a plane that is scheduled ahead of the departure time!
00:08 Katemonster MMAADDMMAANNMMAARRKKAAUU
00:08 MadManMarkAu KATEMONSTER! Did you know, the Internet is for porn??
00:08 MadManMarkAu (reference to your name...)
00:09 Katemonster TREKKI EMONSTER
00:09 Katemonster *TREKKIE MONSTER
00:09 MadManMarkAu xD
00:09 Katemonster it is not
00:09 Katemonster the internet is for education and stuff.
00:09 * Katemonster 's name is not actually a reference to Ave. Q
00:09 MadManMarkAu I kinda guessed :P
00:10 Katemonster real name: Kaitlyn - screen name: Caspian Sea Monster
00:10 Katemonster katemonster is easier
00:11 MadManMarkAu Roger that
00:11 angy-airport Yay, you got an i in kaitlyn :)
00:11 Katemonster lol
00:11 Katemonster why does that matter?
00:12 angy-airport It does not, I just find it cute
00:12 Katemonster lol okay.
00:13 Katemonster i've actually had someone outright tell me one time that i spell my own name wrong.
00:14 Katemonster http://youtu.be/c-glb-_heEg
00:16 angy-airport I usually tend to think that people know how to write their names
00:17 masterofmonks Makes me think of Cait Sith
00:19 Katemonster ...i'm an electromechanical cat puppet riding a giant Mog?

00:24 angy and better on the Mac :)
00:25 Katemonster ...
00:26 angy I like the free wifi in the airports
00:26 Katemonster how long do you have to wait?
00:26 Katemonster and where in FR are you going?
00:27 angy 1 1/2 hours before boarding and closer to 2 1/4 before departure
00:27 Katemonster ouch
00:28 Katemonster is that metric or US time?
00:28 angy I'm first flying AF349 to Paris, then AF7724 to Nantes
00:28 angy it's metricated time
00:29 tonsofpcs I thought it was "flight time" which is made up.
00:29 tonsofpcs remember: Time is an illusion.  Lunch time doubly so.
00:33 masterofmonks Especially on Thursdays.
00:35 angy mondays time is the worst for me
00:36 Katemonster the best time is hammer time

00:40 wannabe1987 BotSteve: tell batsteve at 20:40est BotSteve  mentioned a new post (topic says to tell you....)
00:40 BotSteve wannabe1987: I'll pass that on when batsteve is around.
00:41 wannabe1987 thanks BotSteve
00:41 BotSteve No problem, wannabe1987
00:41 angy I wanted to go with the A380 but it was way too much to change the ticket
00:43 tonsofpcs angy: do international flights still have the plane's radios on the in-seat tuners?
00:43 angy most of them have
00:44 angy I had one once with the com are in the nose of the plane
00:44 angy that was so cool
00:46 angy internet is so slow on the airport wifi
00:48 tonsofpcs i flew on 'song' once, they had the plane's GPS in the in-seat displays (everyone had one)
00:49 wannabe1987 tonsofpcs:  i had that when i went to england :D
00:49 angy that's now more often that cockpit radio
00:50 angy and nearly no more airlines give the headphones, now they sell them
00:52 ajprog_laptop they give earphones when I went to NL last year
00:53 angy I did not see them for roughly a year now
00:53 angy but we still have champagne on Air France
00:55 tonsofpcs i got free headphones on a continental flight that didn't have any in-flight audio (they broke it or something)....
00:55 tonsofpcs (and it was a redeye... LAS to EWR)
00:55 angy mouhahahahahahahahahahaha
00:56 tonsofpcs do they have to use 'weak' bubbly when they fly to avoid blow-outs?
01:05 wannabe1987 going to a bonfire now....
01:05 exor674 sorta relatedly
01:05 tonsofpcs mm, fire
01:05 exor674 I wonder how high/low a full and sealed can of cola could survive before it exploded
01:05 angy not good with plane
01:06 * dr_jkl flop
01:06 wannabe1987 o.O
01:06 dr_jkl EXHAUSTED.

01:17 angy :) that's a head start as well
01:18 angy boarding is now in roughly 45 minutes, I bet it will be late
01:18 dr_jkl what are you boarding?
01:18 angy a plane
01:18 dr_jkl to where?
01:18 angy France
01:18 angy I would have gladly take Florida, but too much security controls
01:19 angy they did not check my passport once yet
01:20 angy but I'll be back, in USA this time
01:21 angy If I can enter due to the lovely border & customs your country have
01:22 dr_jkl i'll tell them to let you in
01:22 angy that would be awesome
01:22 angy I'll try not to punch them in the eye then
01:24 dr_jkl angy: tell them to let you in or you les battre avec votre pénis
01:25 angy that I could do :)
01:25 dr_jkl lol

01:28 tonsofpcs hi hi
01:29 angy I see a people clot throw a windows
01:29 angy it's funny
01:30 tonsofpcs people clot?
01:30 tonsofpcs lol
01:30 angy looks exactly like a blood clot
01:30 angy let's hope the airport don't do an embolism
01:31 angy or is an embolism the definition of luggage gathering?
01:38 tonsofpcs heh
01:38 angy did you ever had a fun time claiming luggage?
01:54 dr_jkl my back is killing me and i can't find my painkillers :/
01:54 angy you can use mine, in the front pocket of my luggage
01:54 angy but I don't really recommend them, they are kind of hard
01:55 ajprog_laptop angy I didn't thet check your passport leaving, omly comingin
01:56 angy I thought they would check, I could have found the frequent flyer card I used to register the flight :)
01:56 Killa-X anyone have suggestions on making a current transformer waveform into a solid DC...
01:56 angy it's so fun to see all people rushing to the boarding desk even though it's not yet open
01:56 angy ``I want to be the first!''
01:58 SparkyProjects killa, bridge rectify and smothing cap, but be aware the calibration will need checking
01:58 Killa-X didnt work..
01:58 angy why do nobody ever respect the boarding sequences?
01:58 Killa-X Tried single and fullwave rectifier. tried 0.1 to 10uF capacitors, nothing gives me a solid DC, just a hump in the line
01:58 SparkyProjects If you're using it for anything but the correct meter, then add a load resistor across the terminals
01:59 Killa-X there already is a burden resistor hehe
01:59 SparkyProjects What are you doing with the output ?
02:00 Killa-X being rectified and filtered, then going to Signal pin of a LM3914
02:01 Killa-X but scope shows me, the signal isnt going to be useful
02:02 angy ok, I'm off!
02:02 angy See ya all in a few hours ;)
02:02 Killa-X http://i.imgur.com/lGbIq.jpg I gotta take tha wiggly current waveform, into smooth DC
02:02 SparkyProjects Make sure the resistor isn't too low or too high in resistance, you may also add a small load to the DC
02:03 Killa-X but the peak of the waveform is what im measuring, so thats why my idea was yeah, Rectify, Filter. Easy!  Not
02:03 SparkyProjects Is this for sensing if current is on or off ?
02:03 Killa-X it is going 50khz as well
02:03 Killa-X this is for sensing voltage
02:03 Killa-X 0.1V = 100A
02:04 SparkyProjects But are you measuring voltage or cheking if it's on
02:04 Killa-X http://i.imgur.com/yZMyd.jpg here, I did a 2VDC test, because 2V = 2000A
02:04 Killa-X im measuring the voltage
02:05 Killa-X when the CT puts out 1V, my meter will be on 10
02:05 Killa-X works easy on  a DC PSU. but when the CT is at 1000A, which is 1V on my scope, its not working.
02:07 Killa-X im thinking the volts maybe too low in current, like, maybe get a 1V -> 10V booster
02:08 SparkyProjects OK, try this
02:08 SparkyProjects Put a potentiometer on the DC output, and a fixed resistor on the AC side calculate as a near replacement for the original meter, Play with the pot,  also play with higher rated caps.
02:08 SparkyProjects Also, i'm wondering if the frequency and power is leaking across, try shielding/earthing
02:08 Killa-X the signal has no RF/noise on it
02:09 SparkyProjects One other way is an opto isolator
02:09 Killa-X with DC i would expect to see a flat line, but instead im getting a hump that goes from 0V, 1V, to 0V..
02:09 Killa-X at 50khz
02:09 Killa-X and i hihgly doubt these chips can respond at that rate
02:09 SparkyProjects 50 KHz suggests rf
02:09 Killa-X no, its not RF
02:10 Killa-X that filter capacitor isnt going to charge when you are giving it 1V, for a 50khz, 5% duty period
02:10 SparkyProjects some  sort of interference, try grounding the negative
02:10 Killa-X er
02:10 Killa-X ill do it if you pay me $400..
02:11 Killa-X ya ground that CT and scope+power supply on that CT will explode..been there, done that :P
02:12 Killa-X cuz the bridge is grounded.  If that scope probe gets grounded, it causes that CM300 to go kaboom.
02:12 Killa-X anywho, im gona try a resistor, if it fails, im going to redo this digitally
02:13 SparkyProjects The CT is isolated from the measured device, passes through the bridge, i assume the negative is connected to the scope terminal. some scopes have a floating ground which allows them to be grounded if you wish.
02:13 SparkyProjects Or is tht not the way you did it ?
02:14 SparkyProjects Isolate the bridge so ONLY the negative is grounded
02:15 Killa-X it is
02:15 Killa-X which is dumb really
02:15 Killa-X your suppose to use isolation transformers on DRSSTCS
02:16 Killa-X you never want to ground any boards
02:16 Killa-X I manage to pull it off user fiber, else if i hooked a grounded object to the BNC port, bad things happen
02:17 egrsteve if you need a clean dc voltage try a zener based shunt regulator
02:17 Killa-X anyways. Digital is gona be a better easier method of doing this...
02:17 Killa-X by having a chip sample part of the waveform at a 50khz rate..
02:18 SparkyProjects Isn't the CT isolated from the circuit ?
02:18 Killa-X if you ground it, its not
02:19 Killa-X @egrsteve yeah, i need to convert that complex waveform to a solid DC
02:20 SparkyProjects I think i'd have to see the circuit before i can comment further, but it's bedtime for me.
02:20 Killa-X ive been warned by people on other forums that what im triyng to do, isnt easy without a microcontroller
02:20 Killa-X which would explain why id be the first to make such a thing
02:22 * speedrunnerg55 fondels his new spatula
02:22 SparkyProjects I still think there's some sort of voltage breakthrough.
02:23 Killa-X real issue is the limited current and voltage a CT pumps out..
02:24 SparkyProjects Is it an off the shelf CT or a homebrew ?
02:25 Hackbat joined #thegeekgroup
02:26 SparkyProjects Killa-X ^
02:27 Killa-X i tested with a 1:1000 shelf CT and a cascade 1:1089 DIY ct
02:27 Killa-X but im going to try some method steve ward used on one of his coils
02:28 SparkyProjects OK

06:44 pegasus quoted captain malcolm reynolds in a very context-appropriate way just now on reddit. expected karma: 0.
06:55 Experimentonomen this motor is odd, its getting almost 1kHz 3 phase from a bldc motor/alternator setup but still only goes around 4500 rpm
06:57 pegasus what do the coil windings look like?
07:02 Experimentonomen its a small cylindrical thing, picture a cnc spindle but about 5-10 times smaller, the shaft is around 3-4mm, it has six wires which can be wired in star or delta
07:02 Experimentonomen so i'd say its a really tiny version of a regular 3phase motor
07:03 electricguy joined #thegeekgroup
07:03 Experimentonomen but usually 50Hz = 3000RPM so i dunno if this one has many more poles or something, 50Hz on this one is like a few RPS
07:03 Experimentonomen and no it does not have a gearbox

15:05 BotSteve At 07:26Z, BatSteve asked me to tell wannabe1987 thank you!
15:05 wannabe1987 no prob, batsteve!
15:19 tonsofpcs masterofmonks: running AJAX and the server can only handle one client at a time? :-p
15:26 xanhs joined #thegeekgroup
15:26 masterofmonks tonsofpcs: dunno, but it pisses me off.
15:26 masterofmonks Because sometimes it thinks that it is open in more than one tab when it is not, and kicks me out.
15:28 tlockley hoh
15:30 tonsofpcs how the heck is it checking?
15:30 wannabe1987 watching airplane!  supposedly its a funny parody of airplane disasters....
15:30 tonsofpcs wannabe1987: it's a parody of everything
15:30 tonsofpcs (how have you never seen airplane!?)
15:31 tlockley yah, really
15:31 * tonsofpcs is watching the doctor who marathon ... and by 'watching', I mean it's on the big screen while I debate brunch
15:31 tlockley "Shurely you can't be serious. I am, and quit caling me Shirley."
15:31 wannabe1987 tonsofpcs:  easily....
15:32 tonsofpcs tlockley: :)
15:32 tlockley :P
15:32 tonsofpcs tlockley: I know someone who found one of the copilot 'costumes' and brought it as a 'date' to a party :-p
15:32 tonsofpcs err... autopilot
15:33 tlockley the fuckn hilarious
15:33 tonsofpcs wannabe1987: the jokes in Airplane! never get old, btw.  you can rewatch it 500 times.
15:33 wannabe1987 ok
15:36 tlockley dman, i need to fiure out how to take my remote apart
15:36 tonsofpcs smash
15:37 tlockley i would like to, but i want to fix it, not fix it so it cant be fixed
15:37 tlockley atleast not yet
15:37 tlockley its a URC MX-900
15:38 tlockley its a little overkill but i like it
15:40 tonsofpcs oh, one of those weird things
15:40 tlockley sorta, it shaped like a traditional remote
15:40 tlockley i had a phillips pronto but it died
15:40 tlockley plus the mx-900 has rf for its own base stations that have IR blasters
15:40 tonsofpcs if i had to guess, i'd say you can probably pop the cover with a hook kinda like the tools you use to pull a radio out of a dash boaord
15:41 tonsofpcs tlockley: that reminds me, I still need to buy an IR repeater for my home theater
15:41 tlockley i know that niles has some good ones
15:42 tonsofpcs a passive one should be fine.
15:42 tlockley though they may be a bit pricy
15:42 tlockley i do like their HDMI over 2xCAT5
15:44 tonsofpcs looks like I can get one for about $1.25 + $5 shipping
15:44 tlockley where from
15:45 tonsofpcs http://www.summitracing.com/parts/CIP-49202
15:45 tlockley classy
15:45 tonsofpcs could probably find one for like $3 at autozone or similar
15:46 tlockley probs
15:46 tonsofpcs I'd love to find one of those corner mirrors that's flat on three sides so I can just stick it in the corner of the room
15:46 tlockley heh
15:47 wannabe1987 strange movie
15:47 tlockley but i love the stick shift plane
15:50 wannabe1987 ...
15:50 wannabe1987 stick plane?
15:50 wannabe1987 i'm not really watching :P
15:51 tonsofpcs surely you are.
15:51 tlockley in airplane in the beginning if you pay attention, they pilot shifts the plane with a five speed by back of the center console
15:51 tlockley best drinking problem ever
15:52 wannabe1987 stop calling me shirley
15:52 tlockley also tonsofpcs what could cause a remote like the mx-900 to freeze and then not turn back on again untill after a long time
15:54 tonsofpcs crash
15:54 tonsofpcs i won't watch airplane! wiithout watching the opening.  Half the jokes are in the first 5 minutes or references back to it.
15:55 tonsofpcs tlockley: best drinking problem ever? two hands, two drinks, one mouth?
15:55 tlockley heh

15:56 masterofmonks Anyone seen the latest Photonic Induction video?
15:56 wannabe1987 hi zero21764
15:56 tlockley no, what did he do now
15:56 wannabe1987 meet livefiretj
15:57 masterofmonks Popped some things with a cap, but that is less of the question.
15:57 tlockley oh yah, he was playing with one of those huge ones
15:57 masterofmonks I am wanting to identify a componant.
15:58 wannabe1987 i found a pair of moccosains...
15:58 masterofmonks The last thing he pops is a a small board, what the heck is the cylindrical componant with the brass nipple on the top of it.
15:58 tonsofpcs masterofmonks: link?
15:59 masterofmonks http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGzCYYtmffI
15:59 tonsofpcs timestamp?
16:00 masterofmonks near the end.
16:01 tonsofpcs looks like a cap
16:02 masterofmonks That is an odd looking cap.
16:02 tlockley the light switch was good
16:06 masterofmonks Ok, bowling balls are the scariest thing ever.
16:07 wannabe1987 how
16:08 tonsofpcs masterofmonks: would you rather it look like the caps with oversized insulators that are in the backgruond at the beginning?
16:08 wannabe1987 she has eggs coming out of her mouth!
16:08 masterofmonks I think that is an oil submerged transformer.
16:09 masterofmonks I could be wrong, but I am pretty sure that is what it is.
16:09 tonsofpcs why would it have a conductor stuck in the core?
16:11 tonsofpcs and why have the blue plastic stuff?
16:13 masterofmonks And suddenly we are talking about two different things.
16:14 masterofmonks I was talking about these.
16:14 masterofmonks http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xYHcZH7e7Jw
16:15 masterofmonks When I was talking about transformers.
16:15 wannabe1987 she's blowing up the airpilot
16:15 masterofmonks The thing on the board, I have no idea what is, and a cap is a better guess than any I had.
16:17 masterofmonks Also, once again I have to observe that photonic Induction has a notable level of skill to fabricate that control panel and those transformers.
16:18 tonsofpcs oh, maybe
16:29 Cprossu masterofmonks that wiring is nice and tidy in his control panel.
16:29 masterofmonks Agreed.
16:30 masterofmonks It lends credence to his statements that he is a professional, and the videos are him just screwing off.
16:30 Cprossu itt's damn near as nicely done as the old transmitter power supply/rectifier that I took apart
16:30 Cprossu if I had to deal with british safety I'd use all of my time to screw off
16:31 Cprossu they're freaking nuts to the point of health & safety causing health & safety concerns.

17:58 * tesla4d ponders "Occupy Wall Street"
18:02 tesla4d It occurs to me that the best way to show support might be to distribute big umbrellas.
18:04 tesla4d They'd serve as impromptu shields against pepper spray and rain, and could lessen the power of intimidation by providing a physical barrier between the police and protesters.
18:16 wannabe1987 45-0 uom to minn
18:16 wannabe1987 we r winning
18:33 Sgt_Lemming tesla4d, that's a pretty decent idea, with one proviso
18:33 Sgt_Lemming make damned sure people can't sharpen the end of the umbrella :-P

18:53 * tonsofpcs missed something
18:54 tesla4d tonsofpcs: https://occupywallst.org/
18:55 tesla4d Basically, a bunch of people claiming the represent the "other 99%" protesting the bank bailouts, income disparity, and unemployment.
18:55 tesla4d They've been there for nearly two weeks straight now.
18:55 tonsofpcs how many?
18:56 tesla4d It's hard to say. There's a lot of rumors.
18:56 tesla4d Somewhere between 50 and a few thousand...?
18:57 tesla4d Some cases of the police being too rough with the protesters have caught some attention.

19:58 BotSteve Sgt_Lemming: I have the following messages for you:
19:58 BotSteve At 19:55Z, Bat-Mobile asked me to tell Sgt_Lemming that's not a bad idea.
19:58 wannabe1987 bats your a very popular person
19:58 Bat-Mobile apparently
19:58 Sgt_Lemming also was just thinking making the tell function trigger on nick change would be good, I thought it already did, but apparently not
19:58 Bat-Mobile hi sarge
19:58 angy he's fun to pet on the wings

20:06 Toastdude That was only 2 years ago
20:06 wannabe1987 ...
20:07 Xela I can't sing at all - that's why I play a woodwind where I'll never be asked to sing along to whatever I'm playing :P

20:10 BotSteve Seroster: I have the following messages for you:
20:10 BotSteve At 30 Sep 21:58Z, wannabe1987 asked me to ask Seroster how much swedish dolls are worth....from  15+ years ago :P
20:10 Seroster Bad fucking day =P
20:10 wannabe1987 uh oh
20:10 Seroster Not in that way
20:10 Seroster Just in a rocking out painful way
20:10 wannabe1987 i didn't state a way, but ok
20:10 Bat-Mobile hi seroster
20:10 Seroster Hi bat
20:10 wannabe1987 i have a gold sticker on my hand
20:11 Seroster Today I moved 20 tonnes of paving asphalt, rocks and gravel.
20:11 Seroster I drank over ten liters and havent went to the bathroom once, wich kind of tells you how sweaty it was.
20:11 wannabe1987 why?
20:11 Seroster And I broke my thumb.
20:11 wannabe1987 ...
20:11 Xela your day sucked
20:11 Seroster And I had to break the asphalt with a pickaxe before moving it
20:11 Seroster The easy part was 5cm thick.
20:12 Seroster The hard part was more like a foot.
20:12 Xela correction: you should have probably stayed in bed today, that's how much your day apparently sucked
20:12 Seroster And... Fuck that sucked.
20:12 Seroster wannabe, because it wasnt supposed to be ther.
20:12 wannabe1987 your thumb wasn't supposed to be there?
20:13 Seroster You asked "why" before I even mentioned the thumb.
20:13 wannabe1987 i was confused but now i'm not ok
20:14 wannabe1987 i was confused but now i'm not, ok*
20:14 Xela The power of the comma. It helped my uncle jack off a horse
20:14 Xela *helped my uncle, jack, off a horse
20:14 ajprog_laptop lol, a little difference
20:15 Xela saw that on youtube today, made me lol
20:15 Xela *that = (the comma thing)
20:17 Xela Mh, I still can't post on the geekgroup forum :-( Who should I be bugging about this?
20:18 wannabe1987 joined #thegeekgroup
20:18 Bat-Mobile Xela: you should be bothering Moose
20:18 ajprog_laptop message dr_jkl:
20:18 Bat-Mobile or dr_jkl
20:18 Xela thanks!
20:19 wannabe1987 moose = dr jkl?
20:19 Toastdude Xela: It's when you hum and play at the same time
20:19 ajprog_laptop nope
20:19 wannabe1987 and my battery fell out which is why i went away
20:19 wannabe1987 i didn't think so....
20:19 ajprog_laptop dr_jkl: is jessica
20:19 wannabe1987 yay names!
20:20 ajprog_laptop moose is lis
20:20 dr_jkl Xela: i know you can't post
20:20 dr_jkl you have the same problem as tlockley, which i am trying to nail down
20:20 wannabe1987 i know, moose is also tysk, no?
20:20 dr_jkl it's some obscure permissions thing
20:20 Toastdude Xela: I meant polyphonics
20:21 dr_jkl i am working on it today so hopefully you'll be able to post soon
20:21 Xela Oh, great, if you know about I'll stop bugging you about it
20:21 ajprog_laptop wannabe yes
20:21 Xela Toastdude: Oh, I see. That's pretty cool, not sure if I'd be able to do that, though. But then again there are people who beatbox while playing wind instruments
20:22 wannabe1987 Xela:  i told you she knew
20:22 Toastdude True... I can sort of do polyphonics on the trombone
20:23 Xela wannabe1987: Sorry, I didn't realize/must have missed that
20:23 wannabe1987 o.o
20:23 wannabe1987 its ok
20:23 dr_jkl i made a seamless ringtone out of the popcorn chiptune video
20:24 Xela set mode dr_jekl +9001 internets :P
20:24 wannabe1987 nice
20:24 Xela I haven't been able to get that out of my head since it's been posted on the captain's blog
20:25 Toastdude Lol, me either..
20:25 Seroster My thumb hurts.
20:25 Xela Seroster: Have you been to the hospital/seen a doctor?
20:26 Seroster Nope
20:26 wannabe1987 maybe you should....
20:26 Xela That might help ^^
20:26 Seroster Nope
20:26 wannabe1987 come on its europe.  you guys have free healthcare!
20:26 masterofmonks Hmm, yesterday was the day of the elimination of Racoon City.
20:27 Seroster Nope
20:27 masterofmonks also wannabe1987 it's not free.
20:27 Seroster Yes wannabe, it's free.
20:27 masterofmonks Somebody pays for it.
20:27 wannabe1987 nothing is free
20:27 wannabe1987 i know that much
20:27 Seroster First $100 you pay yourself, but then you get a freecard that lasts a year. It's so people don't go apeshit and flood the hospitals for every damn splinter they get.
20:27 wannabe1987 http://tastykitchen.com/blog/2011/09/bacon-cheddar-bubble-bread/  i want to make this
20:28 wannabe1987 is that for ERs only?
20:28 Seroster Nope, for anything.
20:28 wannabe1987 and 100 isn't bad if you got it
20:28 wannabe1987 nice
20:28 Seroster But if you pay 100 to the E.R the same card works for the emergency shrink, and whatever more.
20:29 Xela "Yes it looks like a lot, but it’s butter—and it’s never too much. Trust me." ...yeah, I can totally agree with that guy
20:33 Sgt_Lemming http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sbQhgEJuExY <--- my ringtone is an extract from this
20:35 Toastdude Mine is Klaypex...
20:36 Sgt_Lemming the bit about 2:45 in with the volume knob looking things is where I snipped out, but the whole thing is worth watching
20:36 wannabe1987 mine is stock :P
20:36 wannabe1987 it rings....
20:36 Sgt_Lemming I have mine as that cause it means I can just ingore any other phones I hear
20:38 Toastdude http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r0a-o16i_Gw  <-- At 0:55 is mine
20:38 Sgt_Lemming that's the one that makes me laugh about people who insist on having a ringing noise on there phone, there is a good reason for allowing people to have different ring tones, not having to reach for your phone every time a phone rings
20:40 wannabe1987 Sgt_Lemming i have a very basic phone, it doesn't have ringtones
20:40 Seroster My thumb hurts.
20:42 Sgt_Lemming joined #thegeekgroup

21:23 yNos i dont know
21:23 yNos that might be the way to go - avoid the $9 parking
21:27 wannabe1987 i never pay for parking unless its a meter....and weds i put 30 minuts on the meter and was away for 3ish hours and didn't get a ticket :D
21:27 yNos i dont think you pay a meter on the weekends
21:28 yNos the oly parking i saw available was in ramps/paid lots
21:28 Seroster I need simple free movie editing software that isnt overcomplicated. Voice to whoever gives me one that fills all the requirements stated.
21:28 yNos lmk if you find one
21:29 yNos if you have windows XP or newer, you likely have moviemakes
21:29 yNos **moviemaker
21:30 wannabe1987 well, i'll check the ford lot first, and then go further west to scribner or the dash lots
21:31 wannabe1987 i have $$ for parking, but i'd rather use it on starbucks or biggby or something

21:35 tlockley what made a ploop?
21:35 Cprossu a crane
21:36 wannabe1987 ?
21:36 Cprossu as in the mechanical kind not the bird kind
21:36 tlockley did it drop something?
21:36 Cprossu no but it did damn near tip over
21:37 tlockley scary
21:37 tonsofpcs bah

21:37 Cprossu it was a port-a-crane
21:37 yNos tmi
21:37 yNos sorry everyone

21:37 wannabe1987 yNos:  thats what i was thinking of....
21:38 yNos the laptop just spend 5 hours doing a make install clean of fldigi
21:38 yNos damn
21:40 Seroster I need simple free movie editing software that isnt overcomplicated. Voice to whoever gives me one that fills all the requirements stated.
21:40 tonsofpcs wow, last I used this PC I was looking up CODi softare :)
21:40 tonsofpcs *software
21:41 tlockley WMM?
21:41 tlockley o nvm, you already tried that
21:41 tonsofpcs Seroster: OS?
21:41 Seroster Vista
21:41 Cprossu ewwwwww
21:41 tonsofpcs free forever or free for you to cut one project?
21:42 tonsofpcs do you care if rendering takes forever?  do you care if it's cuts-only or do you need dissolves and the like?
21:44 tonsofpcs alternatively, are you ok spending a few bucks to get a shitty firewire card that happens to come with editing software that you'd have to buy for $80 otherwise?
21:54 tonsofpcs Seroster: ?
21:54 Seroster Rrrrgh
21:54 Seroster Erm'
21:54 Seroster I don't care if rendering takes forever.
21:54 tonsofpcs play with zweistein version 3.  not 100% intuitive, but it does work.
21:54 Seroster I only need the features I can achieve with a pair of scissors and a roll of tape (imagine 35mm film)
21:55 * tonsofpcs hands Seroster a splice block
21:55 Seroster I am not OK spending a few bucks
21:55 tonsofpcs *finds link*
21:55 tonsofpcs alternatively, if it's a short project, debugmode's wax (a compositing tool, realy) could be used
21:56 tonsofpcs http://www.thugsatbay.com/tab/?q=zweistein_download
21:56 tonsofpcs http://www.debugmode.com/wax/
21:57 tonsofpcs there's also http://www.videospin.com/ and there _was_ Avid FreeDV which you might be able to still find (both of these are avid products)
21:58 tonsofpcs I've ussed all of these _except_ videospin
21:58 Seroster I used to have camtasia crack
21:58 Seroster Worked great
22:01 Cprossu I just bought a hdhomerun prime and an Asus AMD e-350 uatx board
22:02 wannabe1987 wax isn't that easy...i couldn't figure it out :P
22:02 wannabe1987 and i'm blonde
22:02 Cprossu and 4gb of ram yay
22:02 tonsofpcs Cprossu: why an hdhomerun?
22:03 tonsofpcs wax is a compositing program really, not an editor.
22:03 Cprossu because I need cablecard and hate my scientific atlanta piece of shit
22:03 kokona joined #thegeekgroup
22:03 tonsofpcs oh.  I've never putzed with cablecard.
22:03 Cprossu .g hdhomerun prime
22:03 BotSteve Cprossu: http://www.silicondust.com/products/hdhomerun/prime/
22:03 tonsofpcs never had a cable company that fully supported it, other then when it was NEW NEW NEW technology.
22:04 tonsofpcs apparently they now need to make the 1394 interface on your cable box work if your box has one.
22:06 wannabe1987 MSU is winning over OSU
22:11 tonsofpcs i should try that at some point
22:12 tonsofpcs first i need to re-stabalize my home theater 'rack'
22:13 Cprossu I've put together one HTPC rig that worked out better than I expected
22:13 tonsofpcs how many that didn't? :-p
22:13 Cprossu W7 media center seems to actualy work quite well, especially when paired with mymovies
22:14 Cprossu I've built so many htpc's that I wouldn't will on anyone
22:14 tonsofpcs I need an IR receiver for my HTPC
22:14 Cprossu Get a cheapo roswill one that's got the ehome reciever with it
22:14 Cprossu seems to work well enough
22:14 Cprossu I'm really debating on one of those bluetooth logi handheld keyboards
22:14 Cprossu last one I built for a client used a lenovo keyboard trackball thing
22:15 Cprossu and it's a pain in the ass
22:15 tonsofpcs I have a wireless keyboard and mouse

22:23 Cprossu today's a good internet day.
22:23 Cprossu http://www.speedtest.net/result/1511347349.png
22:23 tlockley not bad
22:24 tonsofpcs I guess they didn't fix it
22:24 Cprossu Motorola SB5100 for the win. lol.
22:24 tonsofpcs cable tech thinks it's probably a line issue.
22:25 tonsofpcs I think it probably is but the CMTS should be able to properly throttle the modem and not cause timeouts.
22:25 tonsofpcs I mean, that's why the CMTS isn't just a dumb format converter
22:28 tonsofpcs ugh
22:29 yNos oshi
22:29 yNos the soup party is tonight...
22:29 yNos my sister just reminded me....
22:29 yNos time to get crackin
22:30 tonsofpcs oo, i should have bouht soup while i was shoppin earlier
22:31 Cprossu lol tonsofpcs you know better than anyone why
22:31 tonsofpcs why what exactly? (sorry, my join hasn't synced yet)
22:31 Cprossu RF is a bitch.
22:32 Cprossu and having a non-fault-tollerant protocol won't help anything
22:32 tonsofpcs ah, synced :D
22:32 tonsofpcs CMTS power control is fault tolerant -- so long as the CMTS does its job.
22:33 Cprossu one wire gets cut/degraded in the right place everything's fucked beyond working
22:33 tonsofpcs it's supposed to see framing errors and go "hey, modem, what you're sending isn't enough, try +5dB and keep goin up by 5 at a time til you hear again" "hmm, that worked, ok. try cutting 3dB, if it doesn't work, add it back"
22:34 tonsofpcs etc.
22:34 Cprossu and the 'adjustment' only causes worse issues than it started with which leads to a cascading of events which lead to a race event in which everything gets pushed so far passed spec it's funny as hell
22:34 tonsofpcs the issue I'm seeing is a lack of proper adjustment
22:34 tonsofpcs at least, afaict.  I don't have a specan or power meter with tight filter
22:35 Cprossu fault tollerant would be "we'll work with what we have and make it work because we know reliably what will fail and how"
22:36 tonsofpcs because the cabble modem will not throttle itself up except after a T4 timeout (when it does a full reset)
22:36 Cprossu What I am saying is throttle's breed T4 timeouts
22:37 tonsofpcs I'm seeing the opposite.  The modem resets to 0 and throttles upp _afteR_ a T4 timeout.
22:37 tonsofpcs T4 timeout = I haven't heard anything from the CMTS as far as power in X cycles
22:37 Cprossu and I had X amount of T3 timeouts.
22:37 tonsofpcs right.  a T3 timeout is a single lack-of-power update
22:40 Cprossu did you get to pull the "check the other cable modems in my area" card?
22:44 Cprossu tonsofpcs did you get disconn again?
22:46 Seroster http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MmeWcIQFVUY&amp;feature=related
22:47 Seroster LOL =D
22:47 tonsofpcs no
22:48 Seroster That's just so fucking poetic.
22:48 tonsofpcs the cable tech who was on-site wants to rewire my whole building with fresh RG6.  I want them to fix the damn CMTS.  The online / on phone techs want to keep chalkin it up as a one-off issue
22:49 Seroster Shockofgod -> Vomit. Questions? =D
22:49 tonsofpcs (the cable tech says his boss needs to approve it)
22:49 tonsofpcs I think I'm going to ask the regional engineer to look into it next time I talk to him.
22:50 tonsofpcs I should grep my logs to find when it started being an issue
22:50 Cprossu so did you pull the neighborhood card yet?
22:51 tonsofpcs neighborhood card is irrelevant
22:51 Cprossu it seems to fix stuff with cox at least when I've had an issue
22:51 tonsofpcs cable tech that was on-site saw the issue, saw the graphs, believes the graphs.
22:51 tonsofpcs he was hhere sunday, got a read sunday before he left, was here friday, got a different read friday morning in his pre-appointment check and a different read at apointment time
22:51 Cprossu yay
22:51 tonsofpcs also, this keyboard is crap.  I should swap them back
22:52 tonsofpcs issue is the tech has no power  to do anything other than forard it to his bosses.  He did.  If I don't get futher resolution after calling tomorrow, I'll attack the issue from the side/top (not sure where the guy I know sits)
22:53 tonsofpcs I should just tell the tech who was on-site twice to bring his boss with him next time :-p

22:58 Cprossu nice
22:58 tonsofpcs at work we have one of those little things but it uses a cable for sata, rather than direct plug.
22:58 tonsofpcs got it from the local electronics shop: http://unicornelex.com/
22:59 Cprossu tonsofpcs ajprog_laptop already has one of those
22:59 Cprossu for some reason it only works when I am in the lab it appears o_o
23:01 ajprog_laptop Cprossu: it still works, but when I work on 2-5 computers at a time it would help if I had more than one
23:02 tonsofpcs ajprog_laptop: are you using this on machines that you are working on or on your machine to look at drives from those machines?
23:02 Cprossu yay!
23:02 Cprossu in his case any of the above.
23:02 Cprossu it's kick ass to have
23:02 ajprog_laptop both
23:02 tonsofpcs for your machine, you should get one of those drive 'toasters'
23:02 Cprossu I dislike them
23:02 Cprossu =(
23:03 ajprog_laptop I sometimes use a universal boot disk with an external drive to clone disk or retrieve data
23:03 tonsofpcs there's no connection/disconnection with them, so for your bench machine it'd be good to have.  I wouldn't move one of them betweeen machines
